Roses inherited from my mother ...


Roses inherited from my mother ...

My mother's red/pink roses were tiny bushes when I planted them ... I guess she would be amazed how tall they've grown ...

A very pretty garden, and the grass looks lovely and green

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Cinders ..
I've let the grass grow a little taller than usual to help it recover from the recent months of drought...

25 Jun, 2011

 

Beautiful garden and rose..:))

25 Jun, 2011

 

I think this is just beautiful. What a lovely place to look at and to sit in.

25 Jun, 2011

 

lovely Terra and your mum would be proud of your garden and that you still have her lovely roses :o)) x

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thank you, Michaella, Sticki and Sandra ...

My mother called these her "miniature roses" ...
I soon realised it is the flowers which are "miniature" ... not the eventual size of the rose bushes ! Lol.

25 Jun, 2011

 

Pretty as a picture!

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Franny :o)

25 Jun, 2011

25 Jun, 2011

 

Looks a lovely peaceful spot, Terra. Is the rose scented?

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thank you Sheilar, Cristina, Valadel and Bob ...

I don't know the name of the red/pink roses ...
... they keep healthy and flower prolifically ...
Yes, it is good to have these to evoke memories :o)

25 Jun, 2011

 

very nice terra.. they look really healthy,

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Sheilabub and Surreylad ...

The roses have no scent at all ..
... but are very pretty and extremely profuse ...
... lots and lots on every branch ...

I've managed to grow a cutting which is now flowering well in my front garden ...

25 Jun, 2011

 

Gorgeous. I think Mum would be thrilled!

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Karen ..
Mum would be thrilled ...
... and startled at the large plants grown from her "miniatures" Lol.

25 Jun, 2011

 

:)) Miniatures eh? amazing!

25 Jun, 2011

25 Jun, 2011

25 Jun, 2011

25 Jun, 2011

25 Jun, 2011

 

What a treat TT, mum would be proud. x

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thank you Grandmage x

Hi Cristina ... I looked up rose "Little Rambler" and that has scent, but my roses have no perfume, so probably not that variety ?

26 Jun, 2011

 

A quick guess TT it could be American Pillar but it is a long way away and it could be a semi double.

26 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Bob..
I've had a look to compare ...
American Pillar seems to have yellow centres to each flower, but the flowers on mine are red/pink all over ...

Maybe I'll take a close-up pic this week and put on GoY as a question for identification.

26 Jun, 2011

 

Lovely memory roses, TT, set off beautifully by the colours around them :)

26 Jun, 2011

How nice that they were your Mother's roses.
I have a few plants that were cuttings from plants in the garden I grew up in..so many fond memories still there when I look at them.

26 Jun, 2011

Thank you Smilerjane for such lovely comments.

I built my garden just a bit at a time, which is a fun way to do it.

Gardens are changing and evolving all the while, and, yes... not easy when you have other demands on your time, but sounds like you and your youngsters love your garden and enjoy being out there.

Good luck with your flowers :o)

1 Jul, 2011

 

Thank you very much.. And no thanks are needed as its just honesty ;-D Hoping to get my picture of my sweet peas and the frame i built but not uploading off my phone atm grrrr hahaha.. They smell beautiful :-D
